Out west?

Meindl, Lowa, Altberg, Gronell, Scarpa, all produce a range of quality boots that are stalwarts of sportsmen in just about every terrain on the planet.

When my lowas and altbergs die in about 10 years, I'll get another pair of danners by far the comfiest boot I've owned but weren't waterproof after third season. Still better imo than my current heavy boots. The lowas are superior to the altbergs as reflected by the price.

My Lundhags eventually died after about seven years...well, that's not actually true...the heels and toes have worn out but the rest of the boot is going strong. However, I can't afford to send them back to Sweden for a refit. I did think about all the types mentioned above, including trying on some altbergs in Devon, but in the end I decided to get another pair of Lundhags. 

I'm aware that's more expensive than the refit but, the way I see it, I've now got two pairs of great boots and, when I eventually find a decent cobbler who's prepared to chance it, I'll be able to wear both of them.

Walk for days in them, keep your feet dry when looked after👊Screenshot_20200831-192051.png.ece8d13706b901f6bf05fc12ea8b2260.png

I’ve got a similar pair of haix boots, a tad too small though however,  the grip the soles give is superior to many other boots I’ve owned and find them superior to the alrberg army style boots which weren’t for me, didn’t give much support.

I visited Bass pro / Outdoor world in Florida earlier in the year . I was like kid in a sweet shop . But while I bought clothing and other bits and pieces the one thing I didn’t rate was the boots . Compared to Meindl , lowa , scarpa , altberg . The quality wasn’t there . I didn’t see one pair of boots there that would last me a season . I’m not one for knocking American stuff , because I admire their hunting and shooting culture . But that is just my opinion.

I've tried all sorts over the yrs... The worst were harkila, utter f***ing shite, broke them first day on the banjo😔I'd pay full price for the hiax if I needed but grade ones for the money are ideal for knocking around with the dogs.. 4 seasons for £40 is well worth it.. My mates don't hunt, but have a pair each for fishing, great for slippery River  bank's... And no more moaning their feet are cold 😁

I got a pair bnib from a Marine mate, £40 knock the Lowas into a cocked hat. Had em a few years but only started wearing them last season, Lowas lasted 2 years before they cracked and the soles wore down quite quickly also.

Cheers, D.
